Dear colleagues,
could anybody indicate some photo or observation with Tephritid as a prey of predatory Arthropoda (fly, spider or whatever)?
If not, is there any data that Tephritid are toxic?

A Tephritid as prey of a spider is not unusual, I think. I have seen it more then once.

Ben did not give species name, could I ask our community?
And the spider name if possible.

If you experienced a very sluggish site recently, it may have been because someone tried to upload a maliciuous script by force. It appears to have failed. The visitor was blocked further access.
